This reference design contains example software for implementing 6LoWPAN networks based on the Contiki-OS RTOS. This example implementation included the uIP TCP/IP stack, identified to be potentially vulnerable outlined in the following advisory: Amnesia open-source TCP/IP stack vulnerabilities (AMNESIA:33)
Due to the legacy nature of this example software, this reference design is considered OBSOLETE, and as such there is no plan to update it at this time. It is recommended that TI customers who referenced example software that included Contiki-OS evaluate the recommendations provided by the ICS Advisory and either:
- Ensure to take appropriate actions to mitigate these potential vulnerabilities in Contiki-OS, or
- Move to Contiki-NG 4.6.
